Windies women hoping for better luck in second ODI against Australia

The West Indies women will be hoping a change in venue will lead to a change in form as they take on Australia's women in the second of three One Day Internationals at the Sir Vivian Richards Ground in Antigua on Sunday. The Caribbean side was woeful in the opening ODI at the Coolidge Cricket Ground, going down by 178 runs.

The Windies women struggled to pick-up wickets with Shamilia Connell being the only bright spark with 2-53. However, while the bowlers conceded 308 runs and took just 4 wickets, the batters apart from captain Stafanie Taylor must give an improved performance come Sunday.

The Jamaican scored an unbeaten 70 in the team's 130 all out with Chinelle Henry 14, the only other player getting to double figures. The defeat also leaves the Windies second from bottom on 11 points in the ICC  Women's Championship.

Based on their current form, the Caribbean side could miss automatic qualification to the 50 over World Cup. The match bowls of at 8:30 am Jamaica time.
